16 Buckeye Furnace State Memorial - Ohio Historical Society - Buckeye Furnace is a reconstructed charcoal-fired iron furnace, typical of those operating in southeastern Ohio's Hanging Rock Iron region more than a century ago. Visitors to this 270-acre site can see the furnace, originally built in 1852, which went out of blast for the last time in 1894.

Attached to the furnace is the charging loft where iron ore, limestone, and charcoal were loaded in to the furnace, and the engine house which contained a steam-powered compressor. The reconstructed company store serves as a visitors orientation area and there are two nature trails on the site.

The site's buildings are open by appointment only. Please call 800-860-0144 for appointments. No charge but donations are accepted. Please call for an appointment to visit the site. The site is open limited hours.
